Why choose this course?
Learn and work in a real production environment – this Professional Sound and Video course is developed in close collaboration with the BBC, Skillset and leading industry experts.
The course, which focuses on exploring current and emerging technologies applicable to still and moving image production, also sound design for installations, and is different to many as students can engage in the day-to-day operation of the television studio and audio production facility, extending student participation beyond the lecture theatre.
Students will also develop a theoretical and practical understanding across a range of skills in pre-production, production, post-production, audio design and live sound.
The course centres around the use of the university’s audio recording and television studio where students explore single and multi-camera filmmaking in addition to lighting and acquisition for audio visual effects work. It is designed to teach and develop skills across disciplines and covers a broad range of technologies that will help in the development of your own portfolio.
As well as the television studio, the course is built around the practical use of the university’s Centre for the Creative Industries and its wide range of facilities. The centre is home to BBC Cymru Wales in North East Wales.
You can also choose to study this course as a three year degree (without a foundation year) BSc (Hons) Professional Sound and Video UCAS code:G3B4
